Rick Santorum: Conservative for President

At the Florida NBC debate, Rick Santorum drew a bold distinction between himself and the other two main candidates, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

Here’s one where you have folks that preach conservatism, the private sector. But when push came to shove, they got pushed. They didn’t stand up for the conservative principles that they argued that they were for, and as a result we ended up with this bailout that has injected government into business like it had never been done before. They rejected conservatism when it was hard to stand. It’s going to be hard to stand, whoever this president is that is going to be elected. It’s going to be tough. There’s going to be a mountain of problems. It’s going to be easy to bail out and compromise your principles. We have gentlemen here on the three issues that got the Tea Party started, that are the base of the conservative movement now in the Republican Party, and there’s no difference now between President Obama and these two gentlemen. And that’s why this election here in Florida is so critical: that we have someone who can create a contrast between the President and the conservative.
